Surviving are 5 sons and 1 daughter (Lincoln Koch, Conestoga; Earl, Lorner, Floyd, Walter, and Mrs. Lloyd Martin). Three brothers (Menno of Winterbourne, Charles of Conestoga, Norman of Kitchener), and 4 sisters (Mrs. Ben Musselman of Kitchener, Mrs. S. Stauffer of Glenallen, Mrs. Titus Hallman of Rochester, N. Y., and Mrs. George Reist of Rosedale) also survive. He was widely known in his community, and much used by his fellow citizens. It is to be appreciated, that at the end of a long life, he realized his need of a Savior, definitely received Jesus Christ, and was received into the fellowship of the Mennonite Church. The services and burial took place at Bloomingdale Church, Ont., in charge of Bro. C. F. Derstine. Message, "The Span of Life."1a
